This Homemade Fortune Teller Halloween Costume wasn't easy, Morgan wants a great costume but does not want to be embarrassed.
We started with a large box. We painted it black, cut out the hole for plexi glass. Put a black table cloth around bottom to hide legs. (we used a small strips of wood for each leg.)We had handles inside for her to carry the box herself and move around. We decorated with Tarot cards and cut around all the sayings and pictures on the box and glittered everything. We reinforced a shelf inside to sit the crystal ball (which was a bouncy ball). We used a lot of duck tape and hot glue.... we put battery operated orange lights along inside around glass window, and put coin jewelry around outside of window.
Her outfit was the typical white shirt, several skirts added together a lot of jewelry, brown boots, and makeup. We had a scarf on her head, on the front of the box we put a money slot and place to pick up your fortune. She had the fortunes printed on paper and would stick them through the hole to give it to them.
This turned out beautifully. Not hard to make but time consuming. On and off about 2 weeks.

We made this Zoltar Halloween costume using a box from a microwave.
We painted it to roughly match the colors of the Zoltar video game machine from pictures we found online. I’m not sure if this game even exists anymore, but everyone recognized it immediately. I used a box cutter to cut out the window areas. I used black paint and gold glitter paint to paint the details on the box. I purchased red glitter felt letters to write Zoltar on the box.
Inside the box, I made the back curtains from an old pillow case. I used sparkling wrapping paper for the background and the little shelf in front. On the shelf, I attached tarot cards that I printed off the computer. I created a crystal ball using a battery-operated glow stick inside a globe. Next to the curtains I created lamps using battery-operated candles, glued to the back of the box. I also added gold bead necklaces to the side windows to enhance the look.
For the costume, I purchased the hat and used another old pillow case to create the vest. We topped it off with bead necklaces we had. Inside the box, we taped some fortunes to slip through the hole on the front of the box. My son had a blast being a fortune teller for the night. He was a hit at the Halloween party we attended, in fact, most party goers thought he was one of the attractions.
